After the North West Audio Show, we were on the ferry back to Hifi Pig Towers when we met a group of people who are cycling their way to Rio in time for the Olympics. This epic journey is being made to raise money for the Jane Tomlinson Appeal, which supports children’s and cancer charities, and the ride is led by Jane’s husband Mike. We thought this was a very worthy cause to support so do please have a look at their website and Just Giving page and see if you can help them to smash their target!

27th June – 4th August
6 weeks, 3000 miles. On average 90 miles a day with only 5 rest days. The team are aiming to reach Rio in time for the Rio Olympics raising money for the Jane Tomlinson Appeal. The challenge will mark 10 years since Jane Tomlinson CBEs epic Ride Across America which saw Jane cycle 4200 miles in 2006. The ride is lead by Jane’s husband Mike along with TV presenter Charlie Webster and ex rugby league players Paul Highton and Keith Senior.
